Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
Can you provide me a bit more information? Was this a revocable living trust? Were all his assets either in that trust or in one of the following categories: : i) joint brokerage and bank accounts which vest automatically in the surviving owner upon the death of one owner; ii) real property held as joint tenants or tenants by the entirety, which also vest automatically in the surviving owner upon the death of one owner; and iii) assets with designated beneficiaries other than the estate such as life insurance and retirement accounts.
